Store bought air fresheners can be overpowering and leave a chemical-like odor in your home. They are also not particularly environmentally-friendly. You can turn your home into a fragrant and odor-free space by using natural scents.
To create a lovely atmosphere in your home, you can use scented candles and they're also an attractive way to add fragrance to your home. When it comes to scented candles, there are many varieties which means you're not limited to overpowering floral scents. Also looking attractive are organic scented candles that are environmentally produced. Citronella, an aromatic oil that acts as an insect repellent, is what some scented candles contain and they're great for romantic evenings.
Fresh cut flowers not only brighten up a room, but if they are chosen carefully, can add a lovely fragrance to a room. A subtle scent is provided by lavender and jasmine while dried lavender leaves a discreet scent in the room. Before buying a bunch of flowers, smell them first because many commercially grown flowers lost much of their scent and some are more overpowering than others.
Near doorways and windows, you have plants that give off a nice scent in order to have a subtle scent in your home. Herbs are good fragrant plants, particularly rosemary, various types of mint and others. There are some types of mint that give off a lovely scent when stepped on and they also make good ground clovers. Between stepping stones at an entrance, use mint in order to send a wafting scent throughout the house.
Incense can be burnt to give a lasting fragrance, but choose the variety carefully. The floral ones may be popular but they're also overwhelming and sickly sweet. If you are freshening up to welcome guests, burn the incense before they arrive. Burning a particular mix of dried leaves and wafting the smoke throughout their homes are the Native Americans. In order to spread the delicate fragrance throughout the home, the same method can be used with fragrant herbs and other plants even though it's usually done for spiritual purposes.
To help scent your home if you have a wood fire, you need to choose the wood you burn. Pine gives off a nice smell, and you may only have to choose the right wood to burn to give your home a fresh, pleasant atmosphere.
Because natural scents smell better and cause less harm to the environment, they are preferable to chemical-based ones. They are far better for you though they may not last as long as air fresheners.
